Ltd. and Hunan Maglev Technology Research Center, the new train can run at a speed of up to 160 km/h with a maximum passenger capacity of 500.The rails, power supply system and signal control system required for the new train are compatible with current mid-to-low speed maglev trains, but the highest speed is much higher than the latter's 100 km/h.The train will go into pilot run this August in Changsha, and the whole mid-speed maglev transport system is expected to be completed by the end of this year. By then, it will be the world's first mid-speed maglev transport system for commercial use.(CHINA PLUS)
